Bengaluru: The Congress condoled Sunday the demise of party leaders Ambareesh and C K Jaffer Sharief while noting it was a day of tragedy for the party.

Actor-turned-politician Ambareesh passed away at a private hospital in Bengaluru on Saturday while Sharief breathed his last this morning at a hospital in Karnataka’s capital.

“It is a day of tragedy for the Congress party, with another senior, loved & respected member of our family in Karnataka, Shri Jaffer Sharief Ji, passing away today. My condolences to his family, friends & supporters in their time of grief,” Congress president Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.

He remembered Ambareesh as a “famous son” of Karnataka whose work as an actor and a politician won him a huge following across the country.

He was a famous son of Karnataka, whose work as an actor and in politics, won him a huge following both in the state and across India. My condolences to his family and friends in this time of grief,” Gandhi said in another tweet.
